Booking the Computer or Learning Lab for staff training and events

The Computer Lab and the Learning Lab are bookable for university-related events or activities by faculty, staff and student groups. They can also be booked by library staff. The public use guidelines are listed on the public facing webpage [link to]. When not booked these spaces are open as student study spaces. During regular business hours course-related library instruction and library workshops take precedence.
